I hope the irony came across in my earlier post.
Personally, I think they have got off lightly with the length of sentence they received, and the judge should have ordered their deportation on the serving of their prison sentence, i'm just not convinced it will happen.
Even if the government do decide to deport (and i'm not convinced they will) some do-gooder will start a campaign to let them stay. Of course under our current laws they have the right to appeal again and again any decision taken against them all at our expense. I think it would be great to get rid and ban them for ever but I won't hold my breath.
TO ERR IS HUMAN, TO ARR IS PIRATE
